This week, I was once again reminded that I should spend more time looking at things through the eyes of an inquisitive child.
Piwi Dad called the kids out to see something on the patio on Sunday. What he had spotted was what looked like a tiny bit of dryer fluff 'walking' along the patio toward the garden. Miss K theorized it was an ant carrying some fuzz. I carefully picked it up and discovered that under the fuzz was definitely not an ant but an odd little grayish white bug with lots of legs. The Piwis were convinced it needed to be looked at closely so it was put into an old huggies wipes container with some leaves.
|The eggs on this leaf have yet to be determined. It is not likely a Mealy bug as it is not fluffy|
